>Art Exhibit Update


At the Birmingham Art Association Art Exhibit at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the top award for a painting went to Ted Openshaw! Congratulations Ted. The painting is Untitled.

There are about 60 works in the exhibit. There were award winners in Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media, Photography/Digital Images and Sculpture/3D. Congratulations to all the artists, including Corey King of Skinworks in Bessemer who won an award for his drawing, One Glance.

The exhibit is called 100 Years of Diversity in Birmingham Art will be open until December 31, 2008. Most of the works on exhibit are for sale, and can be picked up after the exhibit closes. Who knew art could be created from Kudzu? Nice.

If you have never visited the Civil Rights Institute, this would be a good time to do so. In addition to the art exhibit, another exhibit titled Darkness into Life, Alabama Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art, is on display. Powerful images and personal stories from Alabamians impart the history of these survivors of one of the ugliest episodes in the history of the world.
